estonian design studio keha3 presents a second version of their ‘tulip fan fan’ bike rack. featuring better stability, and a more ‘frolicsome’ shape, the rack is now equipped to hold larger bikes. the ‘tulip fan fan’ is compatible with a large number of bicycles due to its flexible mounting system. the top third of the object is semi-elastic, allowing for people to mold the form to better secure their property. made primarily for large-scale use, the rack can be fixed by either bolting it to the ground, or casting during concrete pouring. ‘tulip fan fan’ is made of EPDM/PVC piping, with steel wire rope and galvanized metal. it is available in red, grey, or yellow.
